Girls of a Feather

In a box laid with straw, Clara swayed this way and that feeling blessed at her good luck

Clattering along the bumby country lanes in the back of the farmers old truck

She was on her way to Buttercup Farm, free at last from the noisy battery pens

Fields of lush green to roam free, there is no nicer place to live if you are a hen

As the days passed, she was welcomed into the coop although Clara felt a bit shy

The country was very quiet and she struggled to sleep no matter how hard she tried

After many restless nights looking at the moon, Clara’s problems became clear

Poor Clara hadn’t laid a single egg and her heart became gripped with fear

The farmer had taken notice and day shook his head at her in dismay

The other girls awkwardly looked at each other a bit unsure what to say

Each morning she was so exhausted and no egg would come out

The other girls girls clucked and laid wondering what the fuss was all about

Clara was so worried she rolled the other eggs into a bush hoping that nobody saw

She found an old straw hat and hid some eggs under there by the barn door

She didn’t want to get the other girls into trouble, but what could she do?

If she was the only one not laying, the farmer might end up putting her in a stew

Then a terrible storm blew in hammering rain and lightening flashing angrily across the sky

Thunder boomed so loudly the chickens started to panic thinking they would surely die

Suddenly a loud crack brought a tree crashing down into the coop blocking the door

Chickens flew everywhere covered in mud unable to see panicking them even more

Instinctively Clara pecked at the wire creating a hole and calmed all the hens down

This way! she cried, herding them all together and one by one guiding them around

She led them safely to the barn where they huddled in the straw pile, shaken from their ordeal

Thanking her, they stuck together through the night with love and warmth that Clara could truly feel

Exhausted and content, she finally drifted off to sleep nodding her little head

As rays of sunshine woke her, she looked down in surprise to a perfect brown speckled egg

She finally had laid her treasure, such a beautiful sight the very thing for which she had longed

All she needed was a storm, a good night’s sleep and a feeling that she belonged.

With all this in mind, immerse yourself in to the wonderful and enchanting world of ‘Love Country’
